Like just picture Julia Roberts,.. Huge! Huge!!
Yes this is HUGE!!

This month the sponsor is Pure & Original USA.  Have you heard of them??
Better yet have you TRIED THEIR PRODUCTS??
We are here to tell you-do it.
Just do it.

A little about them...
Pure & Original is a luxury brand that provides designers in sophisticated spaces with unique finishing touches. Imported from the Netherlands to the USA, Pure & Original paints are crafted 'in the old way' and are environmentally-friendly, with little to no VOC.

A little about their products...
Classico - a thick, chalk-based paint with natural pigments, applies effortlessly to walls and furniture and requires no primer. Drying surprisingly fast and to an intense, matte color, Classico's resilient finish requires no sealant. Classico may be thinned with water to achieve the painter's desired application consistency. Classico is available in more than 130 colors.

Fresco Lime - a favorite of NYC designers, Fresco Lime paint is made with 100% natural mineral paint composed of quick lime and all natural pigments; when applied, Fresco Lime will become a part of the surface, not merely resting on the top of the surface like latex paints. The final finish is one of matte, unique shades and strokes. As the lime cures, it bleaches the pigments slightly. Environmentally friendly, lime paint is a centuries-old finish used as early as 1500 BC. 'Fresco' is Italian for 'working wet' and is best known in fresco wall murals throughout Europe. Our Fresco Lime is made in 'the old way’ and is available in 114 colors. Additionally, our Fresco Lime paint may be diluted significantly to create an amazing 'lime wash' effect.

Marrakech Walls - Marrakech is a 100% mineral paint with natural pigments that can provide either a concrete finish or a tadelakt finish, a look similar to concrete resulting from an ancient Moroccan technique. The difference depends on application but both finishes provide a smooth, soft to the touch feel, like a stone in a stream. Ideal for walls, it's simple and easy to apply with a brush or roller, followed by a trowel. Marrakech is available in 114 colors.
